VIBESQUAD @ THE UNIFIED FIELD/CERVANTES' | FRI, 5/3/13
Playing under the VibeSquaD moniker, Aaron Holstein creates music that straddles several genres, blurring the lines between breakbeats and bass without straying far from his hip-hop roots. Live, a VibeSquaD show can quickly go from Holstein setting the groove with a nice house tempo to an insane, raging, full-blown dance party. Catch him with Orchard Lounge and more at Cervantes' Unified Field on Friday night. (8 p.m., 16+, $25) -- Britt Chester

DARUDE @ THE CHURCH | FRI, 5/3/13
Finnish dance-music producer Ville Virtanen, better known as Darude, scored a giant hit with his first release "Sandstorm," a track that's sold close to two million units worldwide since its release. While he's never managed to replicate the success of that initial monster track, he's managed to carve out a respectable niche for himself among the world's top trance producers and DJs. (9 p.m., 18+, $15) -- Cory Casciato
